Measure A Friend

As the year draws to a close, we’re getting into some more laid back Math curriculum in K. Aka we made it through addition and subtraction! 🎉🎉🎉 We started measurement this week. I decided to branch out a little bit from our Go Math curriculum and try a hands-on activity today. It got real loud and real crazy. But isn’t that when the best learning happens?

The students partnered up and got to measure a friend using connecting cubes. I had them estimate first, then record the actual length in cubes! They were so tickled (some literally) because they got to measure their partner’s ear, arm, leg, etc. 

I love teaching the students how to measure with standard and non-standard units of measure!

Next week, I plan to use rulers to record the progress of our flowers that we planted! The stems are already sprouting!! Oh, the excitement!
